i have these on 2 bikes 700x28 they went on so nice just keep tucking tube up inside as you go along the good part is there is plenty of room in the fork and rear stays as i went up from 23 to 28 width some tires bulg when inflated not these 28 and thats it at 85 psi better on bumps and cracks on street i have 2 identical bikes except for color one has Kenda Kontenda 23 wide and the other has the perelli 28 wide and there is a better ride with the P7 not as hash and they have puncher protection i say a good upgrade over stock 23
I had a set of Michelins that were wearing out and I wanted something with improved handling but would still have puncture resistance and would last a long time, yet not be too expensive. I'm very happy that these Pirellis meet that standard (so far). I was also pleased to discover that they are not difficult to fit on the wheel despite the width (28cm). I replaced a bad tube with my regular levers, no shop tools required.
These tires replaced a pair of Conti Gatorskins and they have performed beyond expectations, off the bay the tires feel more forgiving on the road. They are grippy on wet roads and even more on dry.
I cannot wait to upgrade the the PZero tires when these are done.
Bought these to replace my Conti Ultra Sport 3 for winter training and noticed a huge difference in ride quality and handling. Sticky and more comfortable ride for winter riding, did not notice a drop in rolling resistance because let's face it, i'm not racing anywhere in real life.
Highly recommend these tires for winer training/riding.
Will switch to Pirelli P Zeros once the weather warms up again.
These are the first Pirelli tires I have tried and I am pleasantly surprised. They have great grip and road feel and are more supple than expected for a training tire. Now I am eager to try thier higher end tires.
I like the tires, the price was right and I had good success with the P-Zero tires for racing & training. Got about 2,000 miles out of them before replacing. These P7's are good, but the back tire is showing a flat tread groove, so be sure to rotate with the front for a more even wear pattern.
